|Date & Time||Sunday July 21, 2019, 4:10 PM (EDT)|
The Line: Los Angeles Angels -170 / Seattle Mariners +156 -- Over/Under: 10.5
The Los Angeles Angles and Seattle Mariners meet Sunday in MLB action at T-Mobile Park.
The Los Angeles Angles look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Angles have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Angles have won nine of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs. David Fletcher leads the Angles with 99 hits and 33 RBI while Mike Trout and Tommy La Stella have combined for 182 hits and 122 RBI. Andrew Heaney gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 5.09 ERA and 54 strikeouts this season. Heaney is 1-4 with a 4.32 ERA and 55 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Seattle Mariners could use a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Mariners have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last seven games. The Seattle Mariners haven’t won a game when scoring three or less runs since April 2. Domingo Santana leads the Mariners with 105 hits and 64 RBI while Omar Narvaez and Mallex Smith have combined for 157 hits and 62 RBI. Yusei Kikuchi gets the ball, and he is 4-6 with a 5.01 ERA and 76 strikeouts this season. Kikuchi is 1-2 with a 10.91 ERA and seven strikeouts in his career against the Angles.
The Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 road games, 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 43-20 in their last 63 vs. a team with a losing record. The Mariners are 9-26 in their last 35 vs. American League West, 0-6 in their last 6 during game 3 of a series and 1-8 in Kikuchis last 9 starts. The Angels are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings in Seattle and the over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings in Seattle. The over is 15-3-1 in Kikuchis last 19 starts overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Angels last 5 road games.
The Seattle Mariners are still in a nasty funk where they can't put wins together and at this point players have to consider checking out mentally, if they haven't already. It's been a complete struggle for Kikuchi these last two months, allowing 41 hits and 24 earned runs in his last 35.1 innings. At home this season, Kikuchi has a 5.05 ERA and .266 allowed batting average. Against the Angels in 67 at bats, Kikuchi is allowing a .418 batting average with five homers. I'm siding with the Los Angeles Angles.
